Prospective Students

Dr. Irish is not currently accepting graduate students, but will be actively recruiting in the following years. Our students typically enroll in either the NDSU Department of Psychology’s Health/Social Ph.D. or Clinical Science Ph.D. programs. 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 cardiovascular health
  • Health messaging and sleep health promotion
  • Sleep health disparities among American Indians
  • 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
