Success Stories: Our Expert Team Helped A Postdoctoral Researcher in the Field of Materials Science Secure EB-1A With PP Requested


Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you very much!”

On October 16th, 2020, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Field of Materials Science (Approval Notice).

General Field: Materials Science

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Researcher

Country of Origin: China

Country of Residence at the Time of Filing: China

Approval Notice Date: October 16th, 2020

Processing Time: 4 months, 5 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

With a doctoral degree in materials science and engineering and extensive experience in leading discerning research in the same field, a postdoctoral researcher requested us to file an EB-1A petition i.e., a request for an employment-based immigrant visa in the classification as an alien of extraordinary ability in the field of materials science. Thus, we started evaluating her comprehensive background of expertise and we asserted countersigning the retainer agreement, thereby extending the reasonable expectation that she has the ability to continue advancing in the proposed field in the United States.

Our client’s EB1A petition consisted of the following details:

  • We noted the 1,720 times her work was cited by independent and remarkable researchers, demonstrating the absolute implication of her research distinguishing her from other researchers in the field of materials science.
  • Additionally, we highlighted the 50 peer-reviewed scientific articles (16 of them first- or co-first-authored) she published. It can therefore be impartially corroborated that she has made substantial contributions documented by her publications, as her achievements have been widely recognized in the field of materials science.
  • Moreover, we validated that our client judged the work of her fellow peers 21 times. Only the sterling researchers in the field are requested to adjudicate the work of others, our client’s notable peer-review experience signifies her strong position in the field.
  • On the top of all, we specified her research focused on enhancing the stability and catalytic activity of electrocatalysts for applications in advanced renewable energy technologies. Her research explicitly addresses some of the country’s most pressing issues in understanding how to leverage functional nanomaterials and nanotechnology to address modern energy needs in a sustainable fashion.
  • To strengthen her case, we included recommendation letters signed by six other well-established experts in the field, one of whom stated:

“[Our client] has distinguished herself as an acclaimed materials science researcher on the basis of her highly cited work and has thus proven herself to be more than worthy of the continued support of the United States.”

Our client received the EB-1A petition approval without any request for evidence (RFE) and within 4 months, thanks to premium processing. We congratulate her for getting an inch closer to achieving the green card success. Our team would like to thank her for trusting our law firm to be a part of this journey.
