Albert Einstein Wife, Education, Childhood, Student Life:
Albert Einstein was born on March 14, 1879 in Ulm, W inst Ratemberg, Germany. Six weeks later the family moved to Munich, where they later began schooling at the Leupold Gymnasium. Later, he moved to Italy, and Albert continued his education at Ariu, Switzerland, and in 1896 entered the Swiss Federal Polytechnic School in Zurich, where he trained as a teacher of physics and mathematics. In 1901, the year he received his diploma, he accepted Swiss citizenship and accepted as a technical assistant in the Swiss patent office because he could not find a teaching position. He received his doctorate in 1905.
In the patent office, and in his spare time, he produced his most important work, and in 1908 was appointed Privatdozent at Bern. In 1909 he became Professor of Paranormal in Zurich, Professor of Theoretical Physics in Prague in 1911 and returned to Zurich the following year. In 1914, he was appointed director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Physical Institute and a professor at the University of Berlin. He became a German citizen in 1914, and for political reasons renounced his citizenship and remained in Berlin until 1933 when he moved to the US to take up the position of Professor of Theoretical Physics at Princeton. He became a United States citizen in 1940 and retired in 1945 from his post.
