The central aim of the present study was to examine the levels of job satisfaction among accounting and finance academics in Irish higher education institutions. Additionally, this research sought to uncover the factors linked to the overall job satisfaction of these teachers. The findings showed that while, participants were generally satisfied with most aspects of their jobs; they expressed dissatisfaction with promotion prospects and time available for research. Furthermore, the results indicated that satisfaction with hours of work and satisfaction with the department head were the strongest predictors of academic staffs' overall job satisfaction. Finally, it was found that demographic variables did not significantly influence the overall job satisfaction of academics but they did exert a significant impact on their satisfaction with some of the job content and work context factors. Implications for Irish higher education institutions are discussed. (Contains 5 tables.)
