In 1969 he was appointed as a chaired full professor in Physics and vice chancellor at Linköping Institute of Technology, which was founded the very same year, and which received full university status in 1975 and thus became Linköping University, Sweden's sixth university.

In 1992–1998 he was the chancellor of the Swedish National Agency for Higher Education.[1]
