John received his PhD from the University of Cambridge. His postdoctoral fellowships included positions at CERN and Imperial College London. John went on to a Senior Scientist position at the Research Institute for Advanced Studies in Maryland. He was Associate Professor of Physics at University of Toronto for three years then became a full professor.
