“Thanks for helping with the I-140 filing!”
On December 7th, 2017, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Postdoctoral Scholar-Employee in the Field of Behavioral Neuroscience (Approval Notice).
General Field: Behavioral Neuroscience
Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Scholar-Employee
Country of Origin: China
State of Residence at the Time of Filing: California
Approval Notice Date: December 7th, 2017
Processing Time: 10 days (Premium Processing Requested)
With a Ph.D. and ample research experience in the Field of behavioral neuroscience, our client from China had plenty of achievements to her name, making her a suitable candidate for EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability). Despite a previous EB1A denial, we refused to admit defeat and petitioned again, which resulted in the outcome we wanted.
What did the EB1A petition contain?
We scanned our client’s research portfolio and selected her strongest achievements that would make her EB1A petition stand out. These were:
- An extensive description of her work focused on sleep and psychiatric disorders as well as reproduction success rates in men. In addition to this, we highlighted her strong background in cell and molecular biology that has allowed her research to be particularly original, with studies on sleep quality in the elderly, drug targets for sleep regulation, social stress-induced depression, and infertility.
- Her 3 peer-reviewed scientific articles that had amassed 140 citations at the time of filing were also detailed.
- We noted our client’s high standing in the field by detailing the 25 peer reviews she had conducted for 14 journals.
“The work that [Client] has done opens the door to treatment and relief for millions of suffering Americans. Losing her contributions would be a significant blow to sleep disorder medicine, biology, and science in general.”
The quote above was taken from one of the 7 recommendation letters that went into our client’s EB1A petition packet. These letters strongly endorsed our client’s unique skills and supported our argument that she should be allowed to remain in the US to conduct her research. Signed by other experts in the field, we have no doubt that these letters played an important role in case approval.
We congratulate our client for finally obtaining EB1A approval, and we wish her the best as she continues to make advances in the field of behavioral neuroscience.
