Case Summary:

At North America Immigration Law, we recently received an EB1B approval for an internationally-recognized Assistant Professor in the field of soil science. The beneficiary’s outstanding ability, highly skilled background, and impressive record of achievement provided a strong case for his EB1B petition. His specialized research had focused on studying agricultural management systems and their impacts on soils and environmental quality, and how to manage these agricultural practices for sustainable production in the United States. His research work had resulted in at least 17 peer-reviewed scholarly articles accepted or published in leading journals and 3 conference proceedings. Furthermore, the beneficiary had at least 48 citations to his work by researchers around the world before the petition was filed. In addition, he had been invited to review 22 articles submitted to prestigious journals. The petitioner in this case was a university. The wider implications and influence of his research is summarized in a quote by a recommender, “His research work […] is a major part of solutions to challenges impacting U.S. agricultural productivity and environmental health. His work focuses on innovative and holistic management practices for minimizing runoff and erosion, improving soils and crop productivity. Efforts in this area are certain to be even more crucial as the U.S. population continues to grow and the need for biofuels increases.”  It was our goal to prove that this beneficiary qualified for classification as an outstanding professor or researcher given the international recognition for his outstanding achievements.  His petition was approved in just 47 days.
