For the record, I see on other lists (like CLIMLIST) plenty of job 
listings/fellowships, etc., for EU-passport holders or UK-passport 
holders only.  I've seen similar restrictions from other regions of the 
world, too.  As tempting as the jobs are, and as disappointing it may be 
to find I am ineligible for them, I wouldn't want to limit others' 
opportunities by insisting that such citizenship-specific jobs be banned 
from the list.
