War On Cancer is a Stockholm-based impact tech startup which aims to radically improve the mental health for everyone affected by cancer. Our first step in doing so has been to create an app where people can connect and share their stories with others who get what life with cancer is like. The app also provides the possibility to contribute to research. We are now in search of a Scientist who will play a crucial role in taking our R&D team to the next level, ensuring we deliver high quality research to our clients.
