Success Stories: NIW Petition Approved in Less Than 7 Months for Postdoctoral Research Associate from Ukraine in the Field of Theoretical Physics


Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you for helping me with the process!”

On October 18th, 2019, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Field of Theoretical Physics(Approval Notice).

General Field: Theoretical Physics

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Research Associate

Country of Origin: Ukraine

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: New Mexico

Approval Notice Date: October 18th, 2019

Processing Time: 6 months, 14 days

Case Summary:

In this EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) case, our client is a postdoctoral research associate in the field of Theoretical Physics whose research focuses on a computational framework to study plasma dynamics, by implementing capabilities necessary for global kinetic simulations of the magnetosphere, which is essential for spacecraft satellite operation. Our goal was to convince the USCIS that our client deserved the national interest waiver by presenting a customized petition letter to highlight his skills and strengths.

We included evidence of the 5 peer-reviewed journal articles (4 of them first-authored) and 1 conference article he published, as well as the 45 citations he received from prestigious researchers. His papers were published in the top journals in the field, which reflects his peers’ recognition of the value of his research. Moreover, our client contributes to the field by offering peer review service for highly acclaimed journals, and he has already conducted over 5 reviews. Only top-level experts in their field are invited to perform this important review work, so this frequent activity further demonstrates our client’s important standing in the field.

Six letters of recommendation signed by noted experts in the field were also incorporated into the petition packet in a bid to further fortify the petition. The following excerpts are how the fellow experts describe our client’s research in the letter: “In order for the United States to maintain its dominance in this market through the years to come, new technologies and improved processes are perpetually needed…His incisive findings in theoretical physics are precisely the kind of discoveries that the American semiconductor industry requires to stay technologically relevant and maximally productive.”

“Through his outstanding research, [client] has made significant headway regarding the mathematical rules governing plasma behavior in the products used by millions each day. For engineers and manufacturers seeking to perfect existing plasma-based technologies or create new ones, this knowledge is incredibly helpful.”

Less than 7 months after North America Immigration Law Group ( filed the petition, the USCIS granted the case approval. Thanks to our experience of securing nearly 15,000 I-140 approvals, our unique legal strategy and customized petition letter have once again helped our client through the process. As our client also filed the I-485 (adjustment of status) with our service, all he needs now is the I-485 approval to get a green card. We congratulate our client on obtaining the approval, and we thank him for choosing us to represent his cases.
