Snoozing during lectures or sneaking in a covert nap at the library might not fly well at uni, and daydreaming during lectures could leave you in academic hot water.

But if you treasure a solid nap, we've got a dream gig for you – one where you can effortlessly excel even with your eyes tight shut.

Don’t hit snooze on this opportunity!

Student mattresses have seen it all. We're talking those subtle reminders that it has weathered countless late-night study sessions, streaming marathons and spilled coffee stains - harbouring more secrets than your course syllabus. 

Experts at sleep tech company Simba are looking for candidates to join a new student ‘Dream Team’.

There are five “Simba Student Sleep Ambassador” positions available. Each successful applicant will be given brand new Simba products to keep as well as a state-of-the-art sleep tracking app to enable you to carry out your duties.

So what does the REM-arkable role entail? 

The “Simba Student Sleep Ambassador” role can easily be performed alongside your studies. 

Each member of Simba’s Dream Team will be given one Simba Hybrid mattress, pillow, duvet and bed linen - worth more than £1,700*

The job is a sleep experiment over a four week period to determine how student life impacts sleep patterns. 

Every night, you simply have to track your sleep using the functionality of the Simba Sleep Coaching App, which will measure variations in your slumber, based on changes to your usual routine or setting, to help the company discover what creates the perfect night’s sleep while optimising your rest in the process.

The position is fully remote, and applicants must be second or third year undergraduates living in a shared house at a UK university.**

How to Apply?

All you need to do is visit the Simba website, fill out your information, and answer three very simple questions.

If you’re a true devotee to the art of dozing, Simba wants YOU. Say hello to a mattress that is engineered to comfortably handle student life.

The closing date for applications is 9th April 2024. Good luck!

How do I track my Sleep?

If you decide to track your sleep through the Simba Sleep Coach app, go to Tools > Track my Sleep.
