The purpose of this study is to find out the level of work satisfaction among academic staff at Pakistan's higher educational institutions. A quantitative study approach was employed to collect data from universities in Punjab and Azad Kashmir provinces using a questionnaire. To elicit a response from the sample under research, Lester (1987) Teachers' Job Satisfaction Questionnaire (TJSQ) was adopted to collect the data. The findings indicate that academic staff job satisfaction is positively and significantly connected to pay, job security, and working circumstances. Job security is the best predictor of teachers' job satisfaction, according to this study. It is also advised that instructors be encouraged and motivated to improve their performance in the learning process by giving improved advancement chances, stable jobs, and suitable working environments. This research study can aid policymakers in making informed decisions on teacher job satisfaction and retention. Additionally, it may benefit students' well-being and elevate instructors' prestige.
