Default Regarding J1 research.

Guys I contacted an Attending at the Univ. of Louisville for a research project.

But there are certain problems with it. He was not sure if I can do research on a b1/b2 visa.
So, Should I have J1 visa to work there. A lot of people do volunteer research on b1/b2 itself but i guess Uni.of Louisville has a different rule.

I was wondering what's the way to get a J1 visa. Should the program sponsor it? and how long does it take to get it? and if I get it what are the pros and cons of having it?

would be great if the admins can throw some light on this.?

Thanks. Hope I m not asking too much info.

as far as i know, to do research and be paid you must be on j1 and uni should do j1 for you. in my case, it took around 2 weeks to get an initial j1 - all you need is ds-2019 and if you are already in the US you dont have to bother with stamping. hope it helps.

Do you need to be ECFMG certified for these research assistant jobs ?
Can a person who is yet to take Step-2 Cs apply for it ?
Thanks

Make sure whether you have to undergo the compulsory home residency requirement at the end of J1 visa term.... !!?
Coz getting rid of that could be a problem.
