This job pays you 1,000 dollars to eat cheese every night! If you love cheese and sleeping – and really, who doesn’t – this could be your dream job. A company called Sleep Junkie is looking into what happens when you eat cheese right before bed and they’re going to pay a group of people to do it and find out.

Sleep Junkie is hiring “dairy dreamers,” the lucky folks who will get to sample a variety of cheese before hitting the sack every night for three months in a row. And they’ll get paid $1,000 for their hard work. The chosen cheese eaters will have to:

  • Record their experiences including dreams, sleep quality and energy levels, with help from their smartwatch.
  • Be at least 21 years old, have good writing skills, be honest about the study and its effects, and of course, …love cheese.
  • Have a consistent sleep schedule and be willing to sleep alone for the three months of the study.

The details on the application page explains that Sleep Junkie wants to test the theory that eating cheese before bed gives you nightmares. They also want to find out if different cheeses have more of an effect than others and how they affect sleep. The company will tell the Dairy Dreamers what type of cheeses they’ll be eating on a weekly basis, from blue to vegan varieties. Applications close February 10th, so you’ve still got plenty of time to get yours in.
