EB-1B: Outstanding Researcher/Professor

EB-1B is a subcategory of EB-1 intended for an outstanding Professor or a Researcher. EB-1B doesn’t allow self-petition. An employer needs to file this petition on behalf of the beneficiary. To be qualified under EB-1B, one must demonstrate international recognition for his/her outstanding achievements in a particular academic field. The beneficiary must have at least 3 years of experience in teaching or research in that academic area. The beneficiary must be entering the United States to pursue tenure or tenure track teaching or a comparable research position at a university, institution of higher education, or private employer. Additionally, the beneficiary must meet at least 2 of the 6 criteria listed below and provide an offer of employment from the prospective U.S. employer. The private employer must show documented accomplishments and evidence that it employs at least 3 full-time researchers. No labor certification is required.

To demonstrate that the beneficiary is an outstanding professor or researcher, one must include evidence of 2 of the 6 listed criteria below (or comparable evidence if any of the criteria do not readily apply):

  • Evidence of receipt of major prizes or awards for outstanding achievement
  • Evidence of membership in associations that require their members to demonstrate outstanding achievement.
  • Evidence of published material in professional publications written by others about the noncitizen’s work in the academic field.
  • Evidence of participation, either on a panel or individually, as a judge of the work of others in the same or allied academic field.
  • Evidence of original scientific or scholarly research contributions in the field.
  • Evidence of authorship of scholarly books or articles (in scholarly journals with international circulation) in the field.

Carnegie Evaluations’ experts can opine on the veracity of such criteria claims based on the documentary evidence provided.
