Get involved

We are very keen to work with people from a wide range of backgrounds.

Facilitated and hosted events

We have hosted and facilitated a lot of different events, including high-level residential programmes for government departments and executive education events. The facilities in West Court are extremely high-quality. Please contact Dr Julian Huppert, our Director, if you would be interested in exploring what we can do.


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. Please contact our Director,Dr Julian Huppert, for more information.

In Residence Programme

Among the facilities offered by Jesus College West Court are three well-appointed one-bedroom flats. We are interested in people who would like to come for a period of between one and three months. Those in residence are expected to engage in the intellectual activities of the Forum, working with students, Fellows, alumni, and the public. We can work with applicants to obtain funding, including funding towards desk, accommodation, and other costs. 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 how this programme operates.
