Read another thread on the same topic. It seems PR for Indians is difficult due to change in demograpy (increase in Indian population by 2% over the last 10 years). I guess it all boils down to luck, my friend!

Yah, I know a guy from India was head hunted by a semi-Govt agency her and one of the offers was immediate PR .. for his whole family .. though he didn't take it up for his own reason ..

Those in academic line and 'scientist' category are treated apart .. unlike those not in the academic / scientist category ..

To be honest nobody knows as each case is considered differently.

I'd say maybe 60:40 in your favour even though you aren't the flavour of the month. Primarily because both are well educated, and bringing a good track record in research & academics, it bodes well for their thrust in the R&D sectors. But, that can also work against you at the same time as they may feel that, with the animosity against Indians now, you may well up and depart as soon as a bigger carrot appears. Or, until the west gets it's economics sorted out.

But, nothing ventured, nothing gained. The worst they can say is no.

re: International Reputation and Important Discoveries

Have you been published? Probably common sense, but make sure you list every single publication on the application.
