On September 23rd, 2022, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for an Assistant Professor in the Field of Mathematics (Approval Notice).

General Field: Mathematics

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Assistant Professor

Country of Origin: Ghana

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Alabama

Approval Notice Date: September 23rd, 2022

Processing Time: 19 months, 5 days

Case Summary:

In order to qualify for an NIW petition, we must showcase that our client has an “advanced degree” or “exceptional ability” in the chosen field. The petitioner must also persuasively demonstrate that his or her proposed endeavor has both substantial merit and national importance; that he or she is well-positioned to advance this endeavor; and that it would therefore be beneficial to the United States to waive the standard requirements of a job offer and labor certification. While each NIW case is adjudicated on its individual merits, the obligation of proof is always on the beneficiary to establish that exemption from labor certification will be in the national interest of the U.S.

Therefore, when our client, an assistant professor in the field of mathematics from Ghana, approached North America Immigration Law Group to help him in filing his NIW petition, our team ensured to collect the following data for his NIW petition packet:

  • We uncovered that as an expert in the field, his proposed endeavor is to continue to harness his experience with fractional calculus and time scales to advance the study of approximations, investigate solutions to fractional differential equation models and dynamic equations on time scales, and produce numerical solutions to the models in order to advance knowledge around infectious diseases, population growth and dispersal, blood alcohol levels, biological systems, and others.
  • Other experts in the field have submitted six letters of recommendation confirming that his record of successful research has well-positioned him to continue advancing the proposed endeavor. One of them stated the below:

“The use of time scales for assessing agricultural pests is therefore invaluable, as time scales account for all of the variability caused by weather and temperature fluctuations. The research conducted by [client], which is centered on increasing the effectiveness of time scales, is thus vital to United States concerns.”

  • Therefore, we were certain that our client’s research has great importance because it improves the field’s understanding of fractional differential and integral equations, meaning that it is critical to advancing accurate and robust modeling in a wide variety of science and engineering problems.
  • It has broad implications focused on the enhancement of time scales, thus playing a crucial role in the comprehension of the United States economy.
  • Also, we noted that he had completed at least 40 reviews to date for authoritative journals and the International Conference on Physics, Mathematics, and Statistics.
  • We also found that his research has resulted in 26 peer-reviewed journal articles (19 of them first-authored) and 1 first-authored peer-reviewed journal article accepted for publication, altogether acquiring a total of 96 citations from many other scholarly experts in the field.
  • The outstanding rates at which our client’s papers have been cited indicate that others in his discipline have relied on his results to an exceptional degree. Other noted experts confirm that his citation record indicates a demonstrated impact on the field that has well-positioned him to continue to advance the proposed endeavor

Unfortunately, our client did receive an RFE (Request for Additional Evidence) while filing for his NIW case, however, our meticulous team did not lose strength, and we promptly refiled his NIW case by accumulating solid proof as aforementioned.

Successfully, our client won the NIW approval from USCIS, and we gladly thank him for retaining the services. We would also like to wish him the heartiest congratulations.
