Navigating Immigration and Visa Issues : A Primer for Postdocs and Young Scientists

Wednesday, October 2, 2013

The New York Academy of Sciences

Presented By

Presented by the Science Alliance


Post-doctoral fellows and other young scientists often find themselves between a rock and hard place when it comes to U.S. immigration law. Not only are employer sponsored petitions often difficult to come by, but the visa backlog means even those with an employer sponsored petition may find themselves waiting for many years. This presentation will address the specific issues faced by post-docs and young scientists in the immigration context, and discuss both the non-immigrant and green card options available under current law.

*Networking reception to follow.
