Success Story: EB-1A Approval for a Postdoctoral Fellow in the field of Polymer Engineering in only 27 days

On November 4th, 2013 we received another EB1-A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) Approval for a Postdoctoral Fellow in the field of Polymer Engineering (Approval Notice)

General Field: Polymer Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Fellow

National Origin:  China

Service Center: Texas Service Center (TSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing:  Maryland

Approval Notice Date: November 4, 2013

Processing Time:  27 days

Case Summary:

The average processing time for I-140 cases is 4-6 months. But on many occasions, we have cases approved much faster than the average processing time. In this instance, the case was approved in only 27 days.

The client in this case was a Postdoctoral Fellow from China in the field of polymer engineering. His work had primarily focused on achieving an understanding of various polymers and on developing improved polymer engineering techniques. His work had resulted in at least 17 peer-reviewed scientific articles and numerous national and international conference presentations.  At the time that his case was filed, his publications had accumulated at least 200 citations, clearly demonstrating that he had influenced his field and garnered international acclaim.  In addition, he had conducted over 50 paper reviews for over 10 journals related to the field of polymer science and engineering. Of his accomplishments, one of his independent recommenders remarked, “I am also very interested in the thermal properties of polymers, which is how [his] work on semicrystalline polymers in the amorphous phase captured my interest and made its way into my own research. I can testify to the impact that [his] work has had on other polymer researchers, since he has significantly changed this area of study with his pioneering discoveries.” It was our goal to prove that our client qualified for classification as an Alien of Extraordinary Ability given that he sought to remain in the United States to continue work in the area of polymer engineering, and that his continued research would substantially and prospectively benefit the United States. With the proof and documentation that we provided, his case was approved in less than 1 month.
