Neil Greenberg, Professor Emeritus, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in ethology, neurology and endocrinology.
Ethology, the study of animal behavior, has long interested Dr. Greenberg and it felt natural for him to follow this field of study in his academic pursuits. He first earned a Bachelor of Arts in psychology, zoology and art from Drew University in 1963. He later received a PhD in zoology from Rutgers University in 1973. That same year, he joined the National Institute of Mental Health as a research ethologist. He worked in this role until 1978, where he then accepted a faculty position at the University of Tennessee. Dr. Greenberg taught at the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology up until his retirement in 2013. Upon his retirement, he received the honorable rank of professor emeritus.
In addition to these positions, Dr. Greenberg served as a research associate at the Museum of Comparative Zoology at Harvard University and consulted and lecturer at the Stokeley Institute. He received a fellowship from the American Association for the Advancement of Science and a National Institute of Mental Health grant. In 1981, he was recognized as a First Tennessee Bank Scholar. Throughout his career, Dr. Greenberg maintained professional affiliation with the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the Animal Behavior Society, the Society of Neuroscience, the International Society of Neuroethology and Sigma Xi.
