     Dr. David Seybert is from the city of Hazleton, PA which is in eastern Pennsylvania. He attended Hazleton High School. He completed his undergraduate degree at Bloomsburg State University as double major in biology and chemistry. When he first started college he only majored in biology because he aspired to become a marine biologist but once he started taking upper level classes of chemistry he decided to major in that also. It was also at this time that he decided he wanted to become a professor. He attended Cornell University for a PhD in biochemistry. After graduate school his first job was as a postdoc researcher at Duke University. After postdoc he got a job as an assistant professor at Duquesne University. He wanted to become professor for two reasons, he loves teaching and he wanted independence. Other than science Dr. Seybert is also interested in math because he believes it works well with science. Dr. Seybert also has many hobbies, he plays the clarinet and the saxophone and he occasionally runs 5K races. He also has an interest in soccer, he was a soccer coach for 15 years and he also has season tickets for the Pittsburgh River Hounds so he always attends their home games.
