On March 7th, 2017, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Field of Condensed Matter Physics (Approval Notice).

General Field: Condensed Matter Physics

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Fellow

Country of Origin: China

Service Center: Nebraska Service Center (NSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Maryland

Approval Notice Date: March 7th, 2017

Processing Time: 9 months, 17 days

Case Summary:

When we filed our client’s I-140 EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition, his 17 published journal papers had accumulated over 513 citations. Not just that, he had already conducted 24 peer reviews for a variety of scientific journals. We included this information and more in his EB1A petition packet.

With extensive experience in the field of condensed matter physics, our client (a postdoctoral fellow from China), was a good fit for EB1A. We further strengthened our client’s EB-1A case by compiling several letters of support contributed by other influential physicists. These letters played a part in obtaining the USCIS’ approval. One such letter read, in part, “Considering the value presented by his research to the technological sector of the United States, I must argue that the cessation of [Client’s] research would certainly be an overall detriment to the research interests related to his field of study.”

Besides recommendation letters and information pertaining to our client’s academic and professional achievements, we also incorporated details of our client’s research projects into his petition dossier. We determined that his specialized expertise is focused on semiconductor research, a technology for next-generation information storage and transmission. We also persuaded the USCIS that his research addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues in increasing the performance of data storage and communication systems.

As we professionally presented the many advantages that our client’s work has for the United States, his EB1A was approved by the USCIS. We congratulate our client and wish him the best in his continued research.
