Abstract: The purpose of this research is to know the motivation levels and factors that affect the motivation and job satisfaction of academic staff who are working at technological universities all over Myanmar. The data derived from online questionnaires which were randomly distributed. The targeted respondents are demonstrators, tutors and assistant lecturers. The findings revealed that when the levels of motivation in each factors such as physiological needs, safety needs, social needs, esteems needs and self-actualization are low, it tends to reduce the satisfaction and commitment of academic staff. But most of the academic staff members have enough needs on esteem and self-actualization so that the commitment level is higher than the satisfaction. They contribute their work performance including commitment not because of the supports from the universities, but because of their self-esteem and self-actualization. Therefore, organizational factors (supervision, reward, incentive, policies, rules and regulation) and personal factors (housing and accommodation, insurance, security) are needed to improve to reduce the demotivation and dissatisfaction of academic staff.
