This study measured how job satisfaction relates to job burnout and work engagement for university non-tenure track faculty (NTTF). The study used the Job Satisfaction Survey (JSS) to measure how overall job satisfaction correlated to overall job burnout and the dimensions of job burnout (Disengagement and Exhaustion) according to the Oldenburg Burnout Inventory (OLBI). This study also used the JSS to measure how overall job satisfaction correlated to overall work engagement and the dimensions of work engagement (Vigor, Dedication, and Absorption) according to the Utrecht Work Engagement Scale (UWES). Sixty-three NTTF chose to participate in this study. Multiple Pearson’s R correlations were ran and significant results were found. Overall job satisfaction was found to be negatively correlated to overall job burnout and both its two dimensions. And job satisfaction was found to be positively correlated to overall work engagement and all three dimensions of work engagement.
