Prospective Students

Dr. Irish is currently accepting applications for graduate students pursing a Ph.D. in Psychology at NDSU. The scope of our work is relatively broad and appropriate for a variety of student research interests, but we are a particularly good fit for students interested in the following areas:

  • Sleep, diet, and exercise behaviors
  • Sleep and disordered eating behaviors
  • Sleep and cardiovascular health
  • Sleep health intervention and promotion
  • Behavioral (voluntary) sleep restriction
  • Sleep, stress, and PTSD

Our students have the opportunity to work on a variety of collaborative and independent projects with clinical and applied populations. For more information about the SLEEP Lab or potential opportunities at NDSU, please contact Dr. Irish at
