Get involved

The Intellectual Forum seeks to engage a broad range of individuals and organisations in its many activities, events and programmes. We run a wide range of engagement schemes.

In Residence Programme

Among the facilities offered by Jesus College West Court are three well-appointed one-bedroom flats. We are interested in all areas who would be interested in participating in our In Residence programme. We are interested in people who would like to come to the Forum for between one and three months. Those in residence are expected to engaging the intellectual activities of the Forum, working with students, fellows, alumni, and broader public. We are delighted to work with applicants to obtain funding, including funding towards desk, accommodation, and related costs of participation. Please contact Dr Julian Huppert, our Director, to discuss the Programme.

Visiting Associates

We welcome expressions of interest from people who would like to work with us. We are interested in shorter-term projects and project interactions or longer-term associations. We may be able to offer desk space and support in identifying accommodation for those from outside Cambridge. In general, we do not have on-going paid research positions and therefore those looking to work with us will need to identify other forms of support or funding. Please contact Dr Julian Huppert, our Director, to discuss the Programme.


The Intellectual Forum has a particular remit to work closely with Alumni of the College.  We are particularly interested in hearing from any Alumni who would be interested in our activities. Some events and programmes may be open to Alumni only. Please contact our Director, Dr Julian Huppert, for more information.
