Of the 314 lecturers interviewed in this study, 229 physical education lecturers, 46 of whom were females and 183 of whom were males working in 7 universities in different regions of Turkey participated in the research which aimed to determine the job satisfaction levels of the lecturers from the perspective of various factors. Of the total 314 lecturers, 7 (3.1%) were professors, 20 (8.7 %) were associated professors, 63 (27.5 %) were assistant professors, 48 (21.0 %) were instructors, 44 (19.2 %) were lecturers, and 47 (20.5 %) were research assistants. In consequence, job satisfaction differs significantly in-parallel to the rise in academic titles and in the years of teaching; moreover, the job satisfaction of participants who work in the most developed region of Turkey is the highest.
