Albert Einstein was born in Germany on March 14, 1879.As a kid he had

finish his studies. In 1894 his father's business had failed and the family
moved to Milan, Italy. Einstein who had grown interested in science, went to
Zurich, Switzerland, to enter a famous technical school. There his ability in
mathematics and physics began to show.
When Einstein was graduated in 1900 he was unable to get a teaching
appointment at a university. Instead he got a clerical job in the patent office
at Bern, Switzerland. It was not what he wanted but it would give him leisure
for studying and thinking. While over there he wrote scientific papers.
Einstein submitted one of his scientific papers to the University of Zurich to
obtain a Ph.D. degree in 1905. In 1908 he sent a second paper to the University
of Bern and became lecturer there. The next year Einstein received a regular
appointment as associate professor of physics at the University of Zurich. By
1909, Einstein was recognized throughout Europe as a leading scientific thinker.
In 1909 the fame that resulted from his theories got Einstein a job at the
University of Prague, and in 1913 he was appointed director of a new research
