Student & Post-Doc Resources
Welcome to the student & post-doc page of AED’s website. Here we highlight many of the benefits of student membership and make it easy for you to access the information.
- International Journal for Eating Disorders - This is the official journal of the AED. Published by Wiley monthly online and bi-monthly in print. CE credits are available for reading specific featured articles. It is a great resource for research and academic writing.
- Career Center - This resource lists jobs focused exclusively on the eating disorder field. You can peruse job postings as well as post your resume—a great place to start your job search.
- Member Directory- This member benefit can help to connect you to colleagues and professionals in the field.
- Special Interest Groups (SIGs) - AED's Special Interest Groups allow individuals with shared interests to discuss and collaborate on specific issues within the eating disorder field. There is a Student SIG, which helps students from around the world connect. As a member, you can be a part of as many SIGs as desired.
- AED Community - The Community offers networking, referral exchanges, and timely dissemination and discussion of relevant information. It is a great way to keep a finger on the pulse of the eating disorder field: ask colleagues for information and advice; give information of general interest to listserv participants, or reply in person to requests for help.
- Social Media - AED is on Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus and LinkedIn!
- Scholarships and Awards – AED offers several opportunities for students to receive research funding or support for attending the annual meeting.
- AED Early Career Investigator Travel Scholarship
- AED Student Research Grant
- ANZAED/AED Young Investigator Travel Scholarship
- Annual Early Career Investigator Award for Best Paper Published
- Research Study Posting - To aid in recruitment, student members can post IRB-approved research study.
- International Conference on Eating Disorders (ICED) - AED offers student pricing for the annual conference. This is a good way to connect and meet other investigators/clinicians, etc.
- Volunteer at International Conference for Eating Disorders- AED invites students to apply to volunteer at ICED for a reduced registration fee. It is a great way to give back to the organization and meet other members, including student volunteers.
- Mentorship Program – AED is committed to facilitating mentoring relationships for members at the annual ICED. AED pairs interested AED members with more seasoned AED members (based on interests) at a “meet and greet” social event, which provides an opportunity for members to receive short-term (and potentially lasting) mentorship from experienced AED leaders. Students are encouraged to sign up to become a mentee during the general ICED registration process.
- Volunteer committees - Members are encouraged to apply to join committees that interest them. It is a great way to meet other members and give back to the organization and growing professionally.
