Hello,

My friend finished his PhD 2 months ago and started post doc on OPT. I am aware that PhD alone doesn't qualify for Eb1(b).  He got 5 publications as a primary author and 4 more as a co author and will have few more as a co author by the end of this year. So far he has 60 plus citations and expecting to reach 100 plus by the end of this year. He has 2 years of teaching experience in India. 

Are these enough to self sponsor under eb1(b).

Unfortunately, EB1(b) does not allow for self-sponsorship. Your friend will need to be sponsored by a qualifying organization.  EB2 NIW and EB1(A) does allow for self-sponsorship.
