Attila Brungs FRSN FTSE named as next UNSW Vice-Chancellor

Attila Brungs FRSN FTSEThe Council of the Royal Society of NSW warmly congratulates one of its Fellows, Attila Brungs FRSN FTSE, on being named as the next Vice-Chancellor of the University of New South Wales (UNSW).

Professor Brungs, currently the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) since 2014, has had a distinguished career in the academic, research and business sectors.  He is a science graduate of UNSW, and has a PhD from the University of Oxford where he studied as a Rhodes Scholar.  Before joining UTS as Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research) in 2009, he spent seven years in senior roles at CSIRO in the areas of science investment and strategy and in business development, and four years at McKinsey and Co. 

Professor Brungs takes up his appointment in January 2022 following the return to the UK of the current Vice-Chancellor, Professor Ian Jacobs, who earlier this year announced his decision to step down after seven years in the role.
