Abstract: The present study was conducted with 105 teaching cadre employees (research and extension staff) of Anand Agricultural University, Anand to study the job stress among them. In regards with different components of job stress, the results revealed that majority of the employees of AAU had very low to low level of role isolation, role erosion, role expectation conflict and inter role distance. Majority of the employees had medium to high role overload while majority had low to very low role ambiguity and resource and personal inadequacy. However, majority of the employees had medium to low level job stress ascribed to organizational leadership, while very low to low level of job stress on account of technological change. Thus, majority of the employees of AAU had low to medium overall job stress. Correlation studies indicated that eight variables viz. age, annual income, job experience, training received, personality, self-confidence, departmental climate and interpersonal communication had negative and highly significant relationship with the job stress.
