Dr. Yael David – Strategies for faculty position applications: Israel vs. USA

1230 York Avenue, The Rockefeller University, 10065, NY,

Friday, Jan 26th, 2018 | 12:00

Yael started her independent faculty position as an assistant member at the Chemical Biology Program at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in September 2016. Her laboratory is predominantly interested in understanding signaling cascades linking histone modifications and transcription regulation. For that, they develop and apply chemical tools to manipulate histones in vitro and in vivo. Together with advanced protein engineering, cell biology, proteomics, biophysics and HTP sequencing methods, the David lab investigates the causal role noncanonical histone marks play in DNA-templated processes in healthy and disease states. Before starting at MSKCC, Yael received her Ph.D. from The Weizmann Institute in Israel, where she was trained as a biochemist, applying her knowledge to address key questions in the mechanism and regulation of polyubiquitin chain assembly. She then moved to the Chemistry department at Princeton University to perform postdoctoral research under the supervision of Prof. Tom Muir. Combining her experience in cell biology and protein biochemistry with Prof. Muir’s expertise in peptide chemistry she developed several novel chemical-biology tools for epigenetic research. Yael is the recipient of the Josie Robertson Young Investigators’ award.
