Considering the limited number of faculty members (184 cases), they were allincluded in the study and no sampling was done. Of all, 145 people completed and returned the questionnaires. It was developed byWysocki and Kromm (JDI) and it describes job satisfaction with an emphasis on work, supervisors, colleagues, promotion and payment. To cater for its content validity, we drew on the relevant literature, matched with Herzberg’s desired parameters in job satisfaction, collected the comments of nine professors in the school of educational management. Its Cronbach alpha reliabilityindices for each of its subscales were as the following: (work (0.90); supervisors (0.95); colleagues (0.94); promotion (0.93) and payment (0.89). The reliability of the whole questionnaire was also (0.96)). Bothe descriptive and inferential statistics were used in data analysis, in particular, T square test, Hot Lyngz and independent T-test. Results show that faculty members’ derive high levels of satisfaction from the two factors of "valuable and useful work", and "being respectful". On the contrary, they expressed the lowest degrees of satisfaction about the "to feel success" and "to need creativity" factors in the motivation aspect. Regarding health aspects, the highest rate of job satisfaction was related to "being good" and "being fascinated by the work" and the lowest to the "suitability of conditions" and "work complexity". Comparing job satisfaction of males and females in five factors (work, management, colleagues, promotion and payment) indicate that men enjoyed higher levels of job satisfaction than women.
