On July 5th, 2023, and September 18th, 2023, we received another EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) and EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approvals for an Assistant Professor in the Field of Communication (Approval Notice).

General Field: Communication

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Assistant Professor

Country of Origin: China

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Minnesota

Approval Notice Date: July 5th, 2023 (EB-1B) and September 18th, 2023 (NIW)

Processing Time: 9 days (EB-1B) (Premium Processing Requested) and 4 months, 8 days (NIW)

Case Summary:

An assistant professor in the field of communication approached us to file his EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) and NIW (National Interest Waiver) petitions. We made sure that he received the best legal aid for the same.

To be qualified for the EB-1B category, the petition must:

    • Show international recognition as being outstanding in a specific academic area;
    • The foreign national must have at least 3 years of experience in teaching or researching in the academic area;
    • While no labor certification is required, there must be an offer of ongoing employment from the sponsoring employer.

Therefore, after reviewing his credentials, we found that our client has accumulated an impressive record of success:

    • He received his Ph.D. in communication.
    • His research has resulted in 17 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 3 book chapters.
    • His publications have been cited 384 times according to Google Scholar, thereby signifying that these publications are widely acknowledged and counted upon in the field of his expertise.
    • He has conducted at least 46 reviews.

Additionally, our client’s research addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues in understanding challenging problems associated with emerging and rapidly growing forms of communication, such as social media. His strong background in computational communication, strategic communication, and digital media has allowed his research to be particularly original, with applications such as corporate communication strategies and policy responses to issues like incivility, misinformation, and polarization.

Leading researchers from top universities and research groups from the United States and abroad have also submitted letters for him as one out of four stated:

“It is my privilege to recommend [client]. I have personally worked with [client] and seen his strong talent for research in communication. His work is characterized by novel insights into core issues in the field, leveraging his unique mix of talents in engineering and communications to develop his research. In light of his value to the field of communication, [client] should continue his research in the United States.”

We are certain that he is more than capable of furthering his knowledge base in his chosen field and continuing his work in the United States of America. He not only received his NIW approval with our efforts but also received his EB-1B approval in 9 days only (thanks to premium processing).

We would like to thank him for his sustained presence in the whole immigration process and wish him good luck in his future endeavors.
