Hi, sorry to hijack your post, but I am really curious why in all these positions from US companies/organizations there is a requirement of US citizenship or permanent residence.

Normally for research and high level positions in Europe there is no requirement of EU residency, so I wonder if these are choices of the companies to avoid some heavy paperwork, if instead there is some unsormontable legal constraint, or if is due to some contractual obligation…?

Just curious…

Hi! In OPeNDAP’s case, it’s because the contract that this employee would work under is from a U.S. federal agency–NASA. NASA has a requirement that all contract employees specifically have US citizenship or permanent residency (a green card). I believe that national security is one of their concerns.

But that is a good question, and one that I would encourage you to ask of all employers that state this.
