General Field: Materials Chemistry

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Fellow

Country of Origin: India

Service Center: Texas Service Center (TSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: New Mexico

Approval Notice Date: June 2nd, 2017

Processing Time: 14 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

Just 14 days after filing his I-140 with Premium Processing, our client from India obtained EB1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition approval. As a postdoctoral fellow who holds a Ph.D. in Chemistry, there is no doubt that he has plenty of experience conducting impactful research in his chosen field of materials chemistry. North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) was tasked with proving that his work is of great importance to the United States and that he deserved to move one step closer to permanent residency.

Building a strong EB-1A case:

Our client’s research addresses some of the most pertinent issues faced by materials chemists. These include efficiently synthesizing advanced materials for alternative energy, and developing carbon-based super-adsorbent for cleaning up oil spills. His scholarly achievements are underscored by his record of 12 peer-reviewed scientific articles (cited 253 times) published in an array of scientific journals.

Apart from incorporating the aforementioned information in the petition, we also mentioned his record of conducting 17 peer reviews at the time of filing. His impressive experience of judging the work of others cemented his position as a leader in the scientific community. The petition packet also included letters of recommendation from other renowned scientists, one of whom wrote: “[Client] has reached the upper echelons of the field, and I am eager to see what new discoveries he will make as he carries out further studies.”

We were successful in building a strong case for our client as we were able to provide ample proof regarding the various applications of his methodologies such as high-capacity energy storage and environmentally-friendly fuel-cell vehicles. We were also able to prove the importance of his studies to the US, and in the words of another expert in the field: “[Client’s] work has an impressively wide impact as the shift away from costly, rare, and geographically limited resources is an American priority.”

We are pleased that our diligent efforts led to EB1A approval. We congratulate our client on this win and wish him the best with the final stage of the green card process: filing an I-485 application.
