A hierarchy of pairwise commuting Hamiltonians for the quantum periodic Benjamin-Ono equation is constructed by using the Lax matrix. The eigenvectors of these Hamiltonians are Jack symmetric functions of infinitely many variables $x_1,x_2,\ldots$. This construction provides explicit expressions for the Hamiltonians in terms of the power sum symmetric functions $p_n=x_1^n+x_2^n+\cdots$ and is based on our recent results from [Comm. Math. Phys. 324 (2013), 831-849].

Key words: Jack symmetric functions; quantum Benjamin-Ono equation; collective variables.
