Background: Job burnout is one of the factors that decrease the productivity of university faculty members. This is important for teachers who are a critical element of the educational system. Failure to pay attention to environmental and organizational factors as well as psychological and personality traits in professors will lead to adverse effects on their mental health, increasing job burnout and consequently, declining the quality of human capital education. Methods:Â This study is a narrative review that aimed to investigate the factors affecting job burnout of faculty members. Articles were searched using Persian and Latin keywords including job burnout, resilience, self-care, faculty members, and academic burnout, individually or in combination at SID, ERIC, Noormags, Magiran, Google Scholar, ScienceDirect, PubMed databases regardless time limit. Results: Examination of the texts shows that faculty members are more likely to experience burnout in the dimension of emotional exhaustion and then in depersonalization. Factors affecting job burnout include environmental and organizational (such as workplace, social support) and individual (such as extraversion and idealism) factors. Resilience is one of the factors that will reduce burnout. Conclusion: By combining individual and organizational characteristics with work areas, sustainable workloads, supportive work communities, fairness and meaningful work, along with valuable resilience strategies, burnout can be prevented.
