Title Postdoctoral Fellow in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology-Roh Lab

Appointment Type Postdoctoral Fellow

Department IUSM - Biochemistry & Molecular Biology

Campus IU School of Medicine Indianapolis

Position Summary

The Indiana University School of Medicine (IUSM) is the largest medical school in the US and is annually ranked among the top medical schools in the US by US News & World Report. Please visit for additional information about the Department of Medicine.
The Roh Lab in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at IUSM studies mechanisms that control cellular identity and plasticity and seeks to use the findings to cure human disease. We use adipocytes (fat cells) as a model system and work toward understanding how to program adipocytes that enhance energy homeostasis, promoting metabolic health and protecting from metabolic disorders, such as obesity and diabetes. We use combined approaches of traditional molecular biology and physiology and cutting-edge next generation sequencing techniques. For more information, visit our website:

We are looking for a postdoctoral research fellow who joins our exciting research team. This role will perform independent research projects under the professor’s mentorship with the focus on the molecular mechanisms that control adipocyte cellular plasticity using cell culture and mouse models. This position will require a highly self-motivated individual who is well-organized, fearless to learn and work continually toward improvement. This position will receive training in molecular biology, cell biology, genetics, genomics, epigenomics and physiology. The Roh Lab strives to foster fellows’ skills for research planning and performance, creative and critical thinking and scientific communications.

Indianapolis is the 12th largest city in the United States and is growing and thriving economically thanks to a strong corporate base anchored by the life sciences. Indiana is home to one of the largest concentrations of health sciences companies in the nation, which contribute over $44 billion annually to the local economy. The vibrant downtown is a bustling commercial center, entertainment destination and residential neighborhood. The expanding residential base is driven by rich amenities and quality of life – the city is home to a variety of professional sports, arts venues and outdoor recreation areas.

At the IU School of Medicine, we offer focused, systematic and sustained programs that are aligned with three foundational pillars of diversity and inclusion: representational diversity, inclusive working and learning environment, and cultural competence. Therefore, we are looking for applicants who can help ensure all our mission areas are inclusive and equitable.

Basic Qualifications

The position requires a PhD or equivalent degree in molecular biology, biochemistry or genetics from an accredited institution. Standard wet lab techniques, such as DNA/RNA/protein isolation and analysis, plasmid cloning and cell culture, are required. Experience in metabolism research or next-generation sequencing (NGS) data analysis is a plus, but not required. Successful candidate will be expected to work independently on projects, generate and analyze data, collaborate with team members, and write manuscripts.
