Dr. Tareq Abu Hamed, a resident of the Sur Bahir neighborhood in southeastern Jerusalem, has been selected by public tender to become deputy chief scientist of the Science, Technology and Space Ministry, ministry director-general Ido Sharir announced on Monday.

A few years ago, the ministry’s deputy chief scientist was an Israeli Arab from the North.

Abu Hamed, a chemical engineer who competed against two other candidates, is replacing Dr. Victor Weiss who is retiring. Abu Hamed was educated in eastern Jerusalem schools, and he received his first three academic degrees in Turkey.

He was praised for his “proven record of scientific activity and the integration of research in the field with many scientific publications.”
