Would you suggest Eb1A or NIW?

Published Jul 22,2013 By GCforPhD

Question:

Firstly, I’d like to thanks you for putting together these extremely useful pieces of information.
I’m a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard Medical School (with a PhD from UC Berkeley).  I would like to apply for a green card in the EB1A( Extraordinary ability) category in the field of computational genetics.
I have about 20 international papers, 2 invited papers, a book chapter with about 300 citations. Several of these have appeared in the popular press and are part of the syllabus in courses across the world. I’ve been reviewer for international journals/conferences and have also been invited to give talks about my work. I’ve attached my detailed CV for more information.
I was wondering if you could take a look at my CV and advise me if I had a strong case for EB1A. If not, do I have a strong case for EB2-NIW?
Response:
From your description and your CV, we think you have a very strong case for both EB1a and NIW. It is important to emphasize the fact that your work is currently part of syllabus in courses. Remember to elaborate on the details you described below in the petition so that a reviewer who is not a technical expert in your field can understand the importance.
Also you could summarize your entire achievements and their importance in couple of paragraphs at the start/end of the petition.

Hello, I am a postdoc researcher with H1B in the field of Computational Physics. I have been in USA for 3 years, 3 job positions. J1, H1B and now H1B (all Universities) and with an increasing salary. I am from Spain and my son was born here.

I have 13 articles with around 150 citations. I am member of the Physical Society, reviewed 3 articles, invitation talks and attending meetings.

I wonder which petition could be better EB1A or EB2. Can you help me? I want to buy one of your packets for self petitioning, but not sure which one.

Thank you very much
