He worked at CSIRO before winning a three-year fellowship to the U.S. In 1975, he joined the University of Queensland as a lecturer in chemical engineering and a decade later became Head of Department and then Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Physical Sciences and Engineering) before being appointed an inaugural Executive Dean in 1997.

"In January 2006 Professor Greenfield was made an Officer in the General Division of the Order of Australia for service to science and engineering, particularly through research in the areas of chemical engineering, biotechnology, wastewater and environmental management, and to the tertiary education sector.

"Professor Greenfield has consulted for national and international companies and government agencies in the fields of biotechnology, wastewater management, environmental management and project evaluation. He has also served on national and international committees such as the National Greenhouse Advisory Panel (since 1994) and the DETYA High Performance Computing Interim Executive Board of Management.

"Currently, he chairs the Scientific Advisory Committee overseeing the $5.2 million Moreton Bay and Brisbane River Wastewater Management Study (since 1994); the Waste Technical Working Group, Basel Convention (since 1995); and the Advisory Board of I.P.

In 1994 "Federal Environment Minister Senator John Faulkner announced the appointment of a panel to advise on greenhouse strategies amid growing friction between business and conservation groups. The panel was headed by Professor Paul Greenfield of Queensland University with representatives from consumer, conservationist, union, business and industry bodies." [4]
