Undecided whether EB1 or EB2-NIW

Published Dec 26,2015 By Praveen

Hello,

Quite an impressive history of success!

Let me take this opportunity to introduce myself.  My name is Praveen Bachawala and I am a Sr. Scientist at Sigma-Aldrich R&D labs, Isotopes Division, where I perform custom synthesis of complex organic molecules which have therapeutic value and incorporate isotopes (13C, 15N, 2H) as per clients requirements.  Isotopes help researchers to identify the metabolic pathway and pin point the true location of isotopically tagged ingredient when ingested into a specimen.  This labelled study would immensely help in obtaining clues to design more robust drugs which are specifically targeted and selective towards a particular disease.  Our clients represent broad spectrum from Pharmaceuticals to  Academics performing various research.  

I am currently on H-1B visa issued 10/2013 and before that I was on F-1 visa during my Ph.D studies.  With 3 patents, 2-book chapters, 1 publication, 4 research awards, outstanding reviewer & recognised reviewer award from Elseiver Publications for reviewing scientific journal articles, 10 poster presentations.  
 
My employer has not initiated PERM case on my behalf as of yet and may apply sometime in 2017.  Hence, would like to Self-Petition, kindly suggest if I have a strong case for EB-1 or EB2-NIW, both of them look scary.  Please guide me in this process.
 
Waiting eagerly for your response.
Praveen

Dear GCforPhD,

I apologize for my delayed response, got one quick question for you before final purchase. I would like to apply for EB2-NIW, since I have a permanent job would it be beneficial for me to apply in Adv. degree professional + national interest or exceptional ability + national interest please advise. When I looked through the seven criteria under exceptional ability: I am not sure as criteria (3), (4) are both confusing. I have a PhD and I am practicing my profession, what dollar amounts satisfies commanded salary as per USCIS is not stated whereas I have been in my current job for 5 years.

Waiting eagerly for your reply,
Praveen B.
