Why are modern day scientists so willing - and indeed eager - to take on senior administrative/ managerial roles?

Because they are not real scientists - or, at best, no longer real scientists - but merely successful bureaucrats of research.

No real scientist, who was primarily motivated by the desire to learn and speak the truth about whatever is their 'problem' - wold give this up to join the dishonest world of hype, spin and outright lies entailed by senior administrative/ managerial roles in modern institutions.
