On February 24th, 2016, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Postdoctoral Associate in the Field of Cell Biology and Super-resolution Microscopy (Approval Notice).

General Field: Cell Biology and Super-resolution Microscopy

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Associate

Country of Origin: Russia

Service Center: Texas Service Center (TSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Connecticut

Approval Notice Date: February 24th, 2016

Processing Time: 2 months, 30 days


Case Summary: 

This EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) case involved a postdoctoral associate active in the field of cell biology and super-resolution microscopy. He enlisted the help of North America Immigration Law Group to help him obtain a green card.

Case Strategy:

After an initial analysis of our client’s distinguished credentials, we confirmed that he qualified for EB-2 NIW. Part of our job was to compile a strong petition to convince the USCIS that our client deserves to become a permanent resident. We started by documenting his doctoral degree, the 54 citations to his 5 publications, and his research projects. Our client’s work in the field of cell biology and super-resolution microscopy has led him to conduct research on nuclear protein trafficking and development of novel super-resolution single molecule imaging techniques. We demonstrated that his findings directly contribute to public health in the United States, and that other researchers with similar qualifications are unable to mirror his success.

Third-party Opinions:

Part of our legal services involved helping our client select potential recommenders who could contribute strong testimonials in support of his EB-2 NIW petition. Our client managed to obtain six recommendation letters from fellow experts in his field, one of whom wrote, “In considering how closely [Client’s] research aligns with the national interest, it is important to recognize the value of his work to date and the loss of future research should [Client] be prevented from continuing his work. The value of understanding serious and widespread diseases in order to develop more effective treatments is readily apparent, and [Client’s] research has already actively and regularly contributed towards this objective.”

In Conclusion:

Less than three months after we filed the NIW case for our client, he received an approval notice from Texas Service Center, informing him that his I-140 had been approved. Our client decided to engage our services again to help him file an I-485 application (I-140 and I-485 are the two consecutive steps involved in the green card process). We thank our client for choosing us to represent his case.
