Replacemetn for intellectual

can you please tell me the replacement for the word 'intellectual'.

See example:

Even though, I am working in an honourable position at a reputed firm, I miss the intellectual challenges and creative satisfaction that I always yearned.

There are a few problems with your sentence, but the word intellectual is not one of them. In my opinion, you should leave this word as it is – it's appropriate to the context, and well chosen.

 

You should remove the comma after Even though and add the preposition for after yearned – to yearn for (sth.) is a phrasal verb.

 

Consider also changing reputed to reputable, and honourable to prestigious. If you choose to retain honourable, please be aware that this is the international/British spelling and that the US spelling is honorable.

 

Even though I am working in a prestigious position at a reputable firm, I miss the intellectual challenges and creative satisfaction that I always yearned for.

Thanks for your responses. I am providing you the context (SOP for MS) where i have written this statement. 

 

I would like to introduce myself as a prospective student of University of Minnesota. I am currently working in Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), as Assistant Systems Engineer. Even though, I am working in an honourable position at a reputed firm, I miss the intellectual challenges and creative satisfaction that I always yearned. It made me reassess and reflect upon the career choices I made and vividly envisage my passion for computer science with utter conviction.

 

Please check the grammar and word usage and correct if it is wrong.
