Join the Team

The MMHE typically considers additional members early in the fall semester. We are particularly interested in working with masters and doctoral level students who are self-starters, invested in scholarly work, great at collaborating, strong at statistics and research design, and able to carry on long conversations about trashy television shows. While commitment to issues of sexual orientation and gender diversity are a plus -- many of our projects broadly focus on issues of race, religiosity, and ability status. Masters students who are interested in applying to doctoral programs are typically a better fit for the team than those who are interested in becoming therapists. 

To apply, you must submit an up to date CV, a statement about your research interests, and a personal reflection about why this research team would be a good fit for you. Depending on availability you will be contacted for a brief in-person interview with Dr. Brewster and a current team member. Please email Dr. Brewster at with any questions.
