Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you so much for your help and preparation. I am glad that I have received the approval notice yesterday from the mail.”

On May 27th, 2023, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Field of Agriculture Science (Approval Notice).

General Field: Agriculture Science

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Research Associate

Country of Origin: China

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Massachusetts

Approval Notice Date: May 27th, 2023

Processing Time: 2 months 11 days

Case Summary:

A client from China with a Ph.D. in biology, biomedicine, and chemistry approached us to help him file the I-140 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition; we, therefore, employed our team of experts to build a convincing case for him. We included details from his professional and academic career in his petition packet to support his claim to the NIW category.

We showcased that along with his academic qualification:

  • He was also actively engaged in the field of agriculture science as a Postdoctoral Research Associate.

And that his proposed endeavor is to genetically edit the genes related to the growth and development of crops to improve crop productivity and facilitate crop breeding.

  • Furthermore, due to its evident national importance, the client’s research has been supported with funding from the National Natural Science Foundation of China, the National High Technology Research and Development Program of China, the Ministry of Agriculture in China, National Science Foundation. This funding is reserved solely for research directed at enhancing public health and welfare, economic prosperity, and national security.

On the other hand, we highlighted that his academic performance has been responsible for several publications, and citations:

1. His research has resulted in 5 peer-reviewed journal articles (2 of them first-authored).
2. His publications have been cited 23 times according to Google Scholar.

Not only this but the recommendations had an excellent review of his work, one (out of four) of which are quoted below:

“[Client] is an agriculture scientist who works at the forefront of his field of study, and is one of the first to report on the functional characterization of maize AGO proteins in small RNA pathways. His research on maize biology and endeavors in understanding the genetic/molecular resources for the improvement of crop yield and quality therefore contain great significance to the global food demand and contains inherent value to both societal and economic sectors.”

Based on this multifactorial assessment, it is clear that the client’s education, experience, expertise, documented record of success, influence in his field, and plan have altogether well-positioned him in his area of expertise.

We are thus very proud that our client got his NIW approval despite waiting for a long period of time. It has been an incredible journey with him. We wish him the very best in his future endeavors.
