Hi Mithu,

The EB1 outstanding researcher category requires a job offer for a permanent research position or a tenured or tenure-track teaching position from the sponsoring employer. If you don’t have it, then you may not qualify. I you have it, then you should consult with the HR or international office of your employer.
