Any nationality requirements?

Please stop asking this question on every job post.

First of all you are asking the wrong question to begin with. No job ever has nationality requirements.

What you probably meant to ask is if the employer is able to sponsor a work visa. This again won't be stated on the job description as such and you won't get an answer for that either. Visa sponsorship depends on many factors and involves sensitive legal issues. Many academic employers will sponsor applicants if they cannot find qualified personnel but they won't advertise that on the job description nor will they respond here.

No offense was taken on my part at all. I was just asking for clarification, and I think that is what Istvan was trying to provide to make the point more clear.

It is clearly stated on the page linked to in the post.

UTHealth does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics, disability, age, or any other basis prohibited by law.

Please check the link to make sure it is not obvious (I noticed you asked the same thing on another post and got a similar response).

I do not ask for applying. Sure any one can apply.I ask for getting short listed. In general, they do not take scientists if they have to sponsor, even if the scientist is competent.

Sorry, but it is hard to tell what you are asking from your brief post. I'm still not clear enough on what you mean to give a direct response so I would recommend updating your post to add some context about your question.
