Job Summary:

The ChemManager+ project is a multiyear initiative to improve safety and compliance at UW-Madison. As a member of the inventory team for the ChemManager+ project, you will play an essential role in ensuring that the data collected from our research and teaching labs is accurate and clean in preparation for upload into the ChemManager+ platform. There are over 1000 labs at UW-Madison and more than 1 million chemical containers to barcode and upload. Our inventory team is out there barcoding and gathering data – you are the final check on accuracy before the data is made into an inventory. You understand that accuracy and integrity are key as errors will have an outsized impact on the project team’s reputation. You can follow procedures – and suggest new ones – on correct data entry methods as well as enter data, raise issues, and follow our data entry requirements. Strong verbal, writing and interpersonal skills are a plus. You will gain experience in chemical and environmental regulatory compliance, inventory system management, UW system processes, and data management. Above all, we want you to grow and learn with us as a member of the project team.

To be a successful candidate, you will need to demonstrate a successful track record in data entry tasks and customer service.

The anticipated project end date is December 2024; this end date may be extended but will not exceed 2 years in duration. We will provide help, guidance, and support for whatever role you want to tackle next.
