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. 

Membership Benefits:
  • 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

 Get Involved:
  • 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.
