European for postdoc in US contract signing and visa

Postby Liv U. » Sat Feb 03, 2018 2:25 am

I have a question about when is possible to sign contract and apply for visa. Is there any law?
I will graduate in June and would like start my postdoc during summer July/August as soon as possible. Is it even possible? Can I sign contract and apply for visa even before I have officially PhD?

I am a PhD in my last year.I got an offer of a postdoc position, but they can only form the contract when I officially pass my thesis defence. Obtain a visa souldn't take too long, a few weeks I think?
