The purpose of this study is to analyze job satisfaction of Turkish academics based on certain occupational and personal variables. The research was conducted on 2073 academics at total working at 73 different universities in Turkey, out of which 776 (37.4 %) were female and 1297 (62.6 %) were male. Data collection instruments were Job Satisfaction Scale for Academics (Keleeioglu, Bilge and Akman, 2006) and the accompanying questionnaire developed by the researcher. Results showed that job satisfaction of academics did not differ significantly according to weekly course load, place of graduate schooling (Turkey or another country) and level of proficiency in English. On the other hand their levels of job satisfaction differed significantly according to type of university, perceived academic competence, level satisfaction from family life and time allocated to personal hobbies.
