Academic staff’s job satisfaction and motivation have been a problem that is experienced by many institutions of higher learning particularly in developing countries like Nigeria. This is because many of the factors relating to teachers’ job satisfaction and motivation have been found to be lacking in many of the institutions. This study determined the differences in the responses to each aspect of academic staff’s job satisfaction and motivation in Catholic universities in Nigeria and examined the interaction of gender, religious affiliation and institutional differences with job satisfaction and motivation. 247 academic staff from 3 Catholic universities in Nigeria completed a survey developed for the study. Descriptive statistics was used to address the differences in the responses to each aspect of academic staff’s job satisfaction and motivation while three-way ANOVA addressed the interaction of university, gender and religious affiliation with job satisfaction and motivation. The findings revealed, among others, that there was a statistically significant difference in the job satisfaction of academic staff across the 3 Catholic universities but no significant difference in the area of motivation. Recommendations and areas of further studies were treated under discussion of findings.
