Ed Greenberg "received his PhD in political science from the University of Wisconsin, Madison in 1969. Prior to his appointment to the faculty at CU, Boulder, he was an assistant professor at Stanford University, and an associate professor at Indiana University. He twice has been a visiting member of the faculty at the University of Washington, Seattle. He joined the Institute of Behavioral Science in 1976, and became the director of the Research Program on Political and Economic Change in 1979. He has served as program director and a member of the IBS Board since then. He was Chair of the Department of Political Science at CU from 1985-1988.

"Professor Greenberg's research and teaching interests include American government and politics, domestic and global political economy, and democratic theory and practice, with a special emphasis on workplace issues. He is the author of many articles in professional journals in these specialties. He also is the author or co-author of several books including: Struggle for Democracy (9th edition, 2009, with Ben Page); America's Democratic Republic (3rd edition, 2009, with Ben Page); The American Political System (5th edition, 1989); Workplace Democracy (1986); Capitalism and the American Political Ideal (1985); and Serving the Few (1974). He is the editor or co-editor of Globalization and Its Outcomes (2004); War and Its Consequences (1994); State Change (1990); Political Socialization (1972); and Black Politics (1971). Professor Greenberg has been the recipient of three major grants from the National Science Foundation and two from the National Institutes of Health, totaling almost $3.6 million since 1976. He has just completed a multi-year, longitudinal panel study, funded by the NIH, that examines the impact of corporate restructuring - defined as downsizing, job reengineering, and new forms of authority - on employees, including their mental and physical health, and their social and political outlooks. This research has resulted in many journal publications and a book "Turbulence: Boeing and the State of American Workers and Managers" for Yale University Press with Leon Grunberg, Sarah Moore, and Pat Sikora."
