On June 25th, 2018, we received another EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) approval for a Development Engineer in the Field of Materials Science (Approval Notice).

General Field: Materials Science

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Development Engineer

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Idaho

Approval Notice Date: June 25th, 2018

Processing Time: 7 Days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

Merely one week after North America Immigration Law Group ( filed an EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) petition for a development engineer from India, the USCIS approved his case. Not only did our client have a doctoral degree and ample experience working in the field of materials science, he also had the full support of his employer—an American company—who served as the case’s petitioner.

Qualifying for EB-1B:

EB1B is a subcategory of priority worker and in order to obtain petition approval, we essentially had to demonstrate that our client had achieved international recognition as being outstanding in his field of materials science. We also had to prove that he had over 3 years of research experience and that an American company was willing to petition his case.

Besides that, our client’s EB1B petition contained information related to his research on the application of electrochemical techniques to material fabrication, with a particular emphasis on semiconductor packaging and cleaning solutions. After carefully going through his research summary, we concluded that his work addresses some of the United States’ most pressing issues in developing effective solutions to critical problems impairing the manufacture and operation of semiconductors.

Building a strong EB-1B petition:

Aside from detailed summaries of our client’s research projects, we also discussed the 66 times his 11 publications were cited as well as the 7 times he judged the work of his peers. We also helped him narrow down a list of potential recommenders who could advocate for the approval of his EB1B petition. The six recommenders our client approached were all prominent members of the materials science research community, and they gladly lent their support in the form of recommendation letters. According to one of them: “He has acquired a critical skill set that enables him to produce highly practical research with major implications for the field. Having displayed superior acumen throughout his career, it is clear that [Client] is one of the most talented researchers working in the field today.”

The approval of this EB1B petition is another example of our impressive reputation for helping our clients get closer to their green card goals. With over 10,000 approved cases, there is no denying that we are extremely well-versed in USCIS adjudication trends and what the immigration officers look for in I-140 petitions. We congratulate our client for securing EB1B approval, and we thank him for retaining us to help him adjust his status for permanent residence (filing an I-485 application).
