Unfortunately we are unable to sponsor visas, so applicants must be eligible to work in the US.

Isn't it possible to simply contract (rather than employ) those who have or can get an ESTA, such that there's no need for a visa?

We're definitely not experts on this. It looks like contracting is not allowed, but "independent research" is. So citizens of VWP countries or those obtaining a B1 visa should be eligible to participate, but we would be unable to compensate them beyond incidental expenses (travel, food, and housing). I've updated the website to reflect this.
