Dr. Mushquash is seeking undergraduate and graduate students with a broad interest in qualitative and quantitative Aboriginal health research on topics including, but not limited to, mental health and substance use. However, he welcomes ideas from potential students on a broad range of research topics.

He is presently involved in research spanning a variety of areas of Aboriginal health, Aboriginal mental health, and substance use. He encourages potential students to review his work in order to establish whether research interests align. He is very pleased to support student-driven research (as long as it is both conceptually substantive and methodologically rigorous). For a summary of his past research, please see the “Publications” sections of this website.

It is important to note that he is very focused on research. Thus, students lacking a genuine commitment to research may not be content in his laboratory. Although he is active in clinical work, students who are interested mainly in clinical work should not apply to work under his direction. He is strongly interested in—and very enthusiastic about—training, supporting, and mentoring emerging researchers in Aboriginal health, Aboriginal mental health, and substance use. If a potential student is certain that they will devote the majority of their graduate school training to research, Dr. Mushquash’s lab will offer an outstanding training experience.

Students interested in being supervised at the undergraduate or graduate level by  Dr. Mushquash should email him ( with their CV, unofficial transcripts, and a summary briefly indicating the ways in which they believe their research interests align. Students interested in volunteering as research assistants in the SURG laboratory should email the Laboratory Coordinator (
