By JERUSALEM POST STAFF
Prof. Mina Teicher, a leading mathematician and specialist in algebraic geometry at Bar-Ilan University, has been named chief scientist of the Ministry of Science and Technology by Science and Technology Minister Matan Vilna'i.
For the last two years the ministry has gone without a chief scientist and has shuffled through six different ministers conditions that have impaired the ministry's role in setting the country's research and development policies. Teicher has a doctorate from Tel Aviv University and did post-doctoral studies at Princeton.
