EB1A for Unemployed Ph.D graduate

Published Jan 19,2015 By Zshaik

Hi,

I am a Ph.D graduate in pharmacology (2007) from US university. Did postdoctoral fellowship in cancer Biology. Had to quit in 2008 due to H1b issue. Then I volunteered in hospital pharmacy and gave exams and became Licensed Pharmacist. As a researcher I have 3 publications, 70 citations, 4 grants, awards at conference presentations and 15 conference presentations. I have been unemployed for 5 years. I want to know if I will be eligible for EB1A. Want to try self petition.

Hello, I’m currently living in the US under OPT, and I used to have a job, but I lost my job due to funding issues (I use to work at a very small university). I am currently unemployed, but I have saved up enough money to live until I find another job. I have a masters in physics, chemistry and a PhD in Chemistry from a US university. I have published 8 papers and only have about 43 citations. It says that I don’t need a job offer to apply for NIW EB2, but what are the chances that my application is approved? And if my application is approved, would I need a job offer to apply for Adjustment of status?

You don’t have to have a job offer to apply. However, in your petition, you have to provide a work plan for the case the petition is approved. Before applying for the adjustment of status, make sure you are staying legally in the U.S. (there is a chance you have to leave the U.S. within a certain time frame if your program was cancelled).
