H-1B Temporary Worker in a Specialty Occupation
Individuals appointed to a DOF employment rank may be eligible for H-1B visa status (an individual employed in a position that requires the minimum of a Bachelor’s degree in a field of endeavor as a minimum qualification for entry into the profession; if a higher degree is required, the individual must have the degree to be eligible for H-1B status (i.e., appointment as an Assistant Professor requires the Ph.D., one must possess the Ph.D. for an H-1B to be filed)). Individuals must be employees and must be paid by Princeton. Those with outside fellowships/scholarships(even if paid through Princeton) are not eligible for H-1B status through Princeton.
The H-1B Temporary Worker status is used for Dean of Faculty appointments as Professor, Associate Professor, Assistant Professor, Research Scholar, Associate Research Scholar, Postdoctoral Research Associate, Instructor, Lecturer, Professional Specialist and Associate Professional Specialist. Human Resource appointments that are eligible for visa sponsor would ordinarily be sponsored in the H-1B Temporary worker status. Likely appointment would be as Senior Research Specialist I and II, Research Specialist II (not Research Specialist I because a degree in a specialty occupation is NOT required for appointment as a Research Specialist I). Other Human Resource hires would be determined on a case by case basis.
No other employment is allowed in H-1B status unless the other employer(s) also receive an H-1B petition approval. For academic activities that are incidental to the H-1B's primary activity, expenses may be reimbursed but no honoraria may be received.
