Prospective Students

Dr. Irish is currently accepting applications for graduate students.  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 leah.irish@ndsu.edu.
