International Institute of Applied Systems Analysis,
Vienna, Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, East China
Normal University, Shanghai, Technion, Haifa, University
of California at Berkeley, and University of Kyoto, Japan,
and between 1989 and 2009 he was
an Affiliate Professor at Washington University, St Louis.
From 2000 until December 2009 he was the Head of the Mathematics Department at the Royal Institute of Technology.
Presently, Anders Lindquist is a Zhiyuan Chair Professor and Qian Ren Scholar at the Shanghai Jiao Tong University and the Director of the Strategic Research Center for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (CIAM) at the Royal Institute of Technology. He is a Member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences and a Foreign Member of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences, and recently (November 2015) he was elected a Foreign Member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. Moreover, he is a Fellow of IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers), an Honorary Member the Hungarian Operations Research Society, a Fellow of SIAM (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics), a Fellow of IFAC (International Federation of Automatic Control), and a Life Fellow of IEEE. He was awarded the 2009 W.T. and Idalia Reid Prize in Mathematics from SIAM and the 2003 George S. Axelby Outstanding Paper Award of the IEEE Control Systems Society (CSS). He received an Honorary Doctorate (Doctor Scientiarum Honoris Causa) from Technion (Israel Institute of Technology), Haifa, in June 2010.
Lindquist is presently on the editorial boards of SIAM Review, Proceedings of the Royal Society A and EMS Surveys in Mathematical Sciences. He has served on many other editorial boards of journals, among them the Journal of Mathematical Systems, Estimation, and Control (Communicating Editor), Systems and Control Letters, Adaptive Control and Signal Processing, Acta Automatica Sinica, and Chinese Journal of Mathematics, as well as book series, namely Systems and Control: Foundations and Applications, Applied and Computational Control, Signals, and Circuits, and Progress in Systems and Control. Since 1983 he has been a member, and between 1985 and 1987 the chairman, of the steering committee for the biennial international symposia on the Mathematical Theory of Networks and Systems (MTNS). For the first half of 2003, he served as the scientific leader at Institut Mittag-Leffler.
Anders Lindquist is also Knight Commander of OESSH (Ordo Equestris Sancti Sepulcri Hierosoymitanti).
