Position at the Time of Case Filing: Assistant Professor

Case Summary:

With exemplary research experience and a doctoral degree, a China-born assistant professor of biostatistics hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to help her navigate the complex process of obtaining permanent residency in the United States. The fact that our client’s research addresses some of United States’ most pressing issues in understanding how to develop computational methods with applications in biology and biomedicine was a huge help in establishing and presenting a watertight case to the USCIS.

We commenced our work by gathering information about our client’s scientific achievements. This included her citation and publication count along with her peer-review experience. At the time of filing, our client had a total of 200 citations and 18 publications under her authorship, including 2 book chapters. Her contribution to the scientific arena as a peer reviewer for highly acclaimed journals—having conducted nearly 30 reviews—was the feather in her cap of accomplishments.

Additionally, recommendation letters contributed by several professors and experts in the field helped us build the case in a more effective manner. The contents of one such recommendation letter is noteworthy. It stated: ““[Client’s] development of novel tools for characterizing tumor heterogeneity reveals that she is a scientist of unusual skill, and the immediate usage of her methodologies in cancer research further underscores her overall influence.” These words gave ample proof of our client’s strong and unquestionable credentials.

In order to expedite the immigration process, our client requested to file her EB-1A petition using Premium Processing (PP). It should be mentioned here that this decision facilitated a quick response from the immigration authorities and our client’s case was approved within 13 days. We are extremely happy about the EB1A approval that our client received, and we hope to maintain the same professional standards as we help her with the I-485 application process. We congratulate her on her success and wish her the very best in all her future endeavors.
