This study was examined the relationship between faculty leaders’ leadership style and faculty teachers’ job satisfaction at two public universities in Kazakhstan (L.N.Gomylov Eurasian National University, Kazakh Women Teacher Training University). One hundred twenty-four academic staff participated the research (117 teachers, 6 faculty leaders), completed the Multifactor leadership Questionnaire (MLQ) and Mohrman-Cook-Mohrman Job satisfaction Scale (MCMJSS). The collection of data is supporting the idea of there is a strong correlation between leaders’ leadership style and teachers job satisfaction. Transactional leadership style is the most used by faculty leaders (Dean, HOD) in these two universities. Transformational, Transactional leadership style have positive impact on teachers’ job satisfaction level, while the Laisses-faire leadership style has negative influence. Another finding is showed that female teachers tend to be more satisfied than male teachers, the teachers with lower qualification are more satisfied than the PhD holders and professors. same result can be seen in other scholars’ findings (Sharma & Jyoyi, 2009; Wagner & French, 2010).
