On July 10th, 2013, we received another EB2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) Approval for a Postdoctoral Fellow Research Associate  in the field of Civil Engineering (Approval Notice)

General Field: Civil Engineering

Case Summary:

This client was a postdoctoral fellow research associate from Jordan in the field of civil engineering with a specialization in nano-scale computational analysis of asphalt concrete pavement using Surface Free Energy concepts. In order to ensure the success of this case, we submitted extensive documentation of the client’s highly significant contributions to the field of civil engineering, including at least at least 3 peer-reviewed articles published in leading field journals.  At the time of case filing, his publications had been cited at least 18 times by independent researchers from around the world. Given the comparatively low citation climate in the field of civil engineering, our client’s citation record is certainly impressive. Additionally, our firm drafted and submitted several recommendation letters from experts in our client’s shared field. One of the recommenders stated, “Through his research, [client] has garnered and perfected a unique set of technical skills that very few researchers possess. He is an expert in the use of Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM, EDX), and Fourier Transform Infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), which he has used to analyze the performance and behavior of various asphalt mixes. He is also an expert in all pavement and asphalt analysis systems including the Asphalt Pavement Analyzer (APA), MTS High-Force hydraulic test systems, Superpave gyratory compactor (SGC), and more.” With the strong petition letter and recommendation letters we prepared, his NIW case was approved in five and a half months.
