Introduction: Motivation and job satisfaction of faculty can play a fundamental role in their performance. Inattention to staff’s job satisfaction causes cessation, relative stagnation and evanescence of them. Therefore this study aimed to determine job satisfaction of academic members in two selected Tehran’s military universities in year 2010. Methods: In this descriptive, cross-sectional study, 150 academic members were selected and received the survey questionnaire. The questionnaire, including 45 items with 5 point Likert scale, had been developed and validated in Isfahan University of Medical Sciences. Then data were analyzed using independent t, ANOVA and Pearson correlation tests. Results: Mean scores of job satisfaction domains ,in a descending order, belonged to mode of supervision and communication(46.51± 10.61), nature of the job (23.83± 4.33), job security (23.76 ± 5.60), physical conditions and job environment(20.43± 6.79), promotion opportunities (17.29 ± 5.93), and salary and benefits(15.12± 5.39). Results of Pearson correlation test showed that there was a positive correlation between satisfaction score and the following domains in a descending order: mode of supervision and communication, promotion opportunities, job security, physical conditions and job environment, salary and benefits, and nature of job.
