Success Stories: Chinese Postdoctoral Researcher in the Field of Materials Science Secured NIW Approval in Less than 6 Months with NAILG


Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you for preparing the NIW case for me!”

On January 14th, 2020, we received another NIW (National Interest Waiver) 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

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: California

Approval Notice Date: January 14th, 2020

Processing Time: 5 months, 26 days

Case Summary:

With a Ph.D. in chemistry and many years of experience progressing the field of materials science, our client (a postdoctoral researcher) had suitable credentials to file her I-140 petition under EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver). Our attorneys and support staff worked diligently to compile as much relevant information as we could to build a strong case for our client.

Petition Contents:

Our client’s EB-2 NIW petition dossier was partly composed of her professional accomplishments such as her 7 journal and conference articles which gathered 18 citations demonstrating that our client’s publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of materials science. We also listed the 13 times our client judged the work of her peers. As only top-level experts are invited to perform review work, our client’s review activity highlighted her important standing in the field.

Furthermore, we accounted for our client’s research on materials design and its applications in energy devices. We then concluded that she qualifies for the national interest waiver as her work is of great benefit to the United States because the study of materials science facilitates the development of clean energy options and people around the globe are searching for clean energy solutions to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

To further strengthen our client’s EB-2 NIW petition, we included 5 recommendation letters contributed by other experts in the field. Their letters advocated for the approval of our client’s EB-2 NIW petition by verifying the value of her work to not just the research community but to the U.S. as a whole. One of our client’s recommenders described her work as: “Through her study of electro-catalytic reactions, [client] has provided new tools to optimize the performance of energy conversion devices. Such devices, like fuel cells that transform chemical energy into electrical energy, have a large number of applications in the energy industry as stationary or portable power sources. Some energy applications for fuel cells include on-site power for hospitals, military bases, and other important buildings, replacements for batteries in laptops, cellphones, and hearing aids, and alternatives to combustion-based technologies for automobiles and factories.”

EB-2 NIW approval:

Overall, it was 5 months and 26 days before the USCIS approved our client’s EB-2 NIW case, and we are pleased that they granted approval. We thank our client for trusting us for her O-1A application too. We congratulate her on this milestone and wish her well as she continues to advance the field of materials science.
