 SparkNotes: Albert Einstein: Professor Einstein
Einstein's long foray into academic life began in 1908, when he was offered an apprenticeship as a privatdozent at the University of Bern.
Although this was merely a teaching job and not a faculty position with a fixed salary, one had to serve in this capacity before becoming appointed to a professorship.
His position was that of "professor extraordinarius," which was a step up from privatdozent but still not a tenured position at the top of the academic echelons; extraordinarius professors still had to teach several hours a week and supervise PhD students.

Six weeks later, Rauch petitioned the Heidelberg faculty to habilitate as a Privatdozent, an unsalaried lecturer, in philology, submitting the doctoral treatise they had rejected less than a year before in support of the petition.

Rauch’s habilitation was provisional because he had received the doctorate in another state, Electoral Hesse, and thus the faculty’s decision was subject to the approval of the Ministry of the Interior of Great Hesse.
