Summary

David was appointed lecturer at the University of Hull in 2011 and promoted to senior lecturer in 2014.

He previously led a research group in computational chemistry at the University of Ulm, Germany, from 2005.

This followed lectureships in physical chemistry at Queen Mary, University of London (2002-2003) and in computational chemistry at University College London (2003-2004), returning to Queen Mary towards the end of 2004.

David held a post-doctoral fellowship at the MPI-FKF in Stuttgart, Germany, working with Michele Parrinello, in 2000 before moving to the ETHZ Swiss National Supercomputing Centre in Manno, Switzerland, in 2001.
