The University of Melbourne has lured Duncan Maskell, the number two academic at the University of Cambridge, to be its new vice-chancellor in place of the long-serving Glyn Davis who steps down next year.

Melbourne’s chancellor, barrister Allan Myers, said Professor Maskell was an outstanding university leader and academic who was “operating at a very senior level at one of the world’s top universities”.

Professor Maskell, currently senior pro vice-chancellor (planning and resources) at Cambridge, is a noted researcher in the field of infectious diseases and has founded several successful start-up companies.
