    in or at

    Here are some examples of sentences.

    I am a mechanic in a garage.
    He is a waiter in a restaurant.
    She is a teacher in a school.

    If a specific school were used, would that change the sentence?

    Which is correct?

    1. He is a lecturer at Harvard University


    2. He is a lecturer in Harvard University

    So in this example sentence number 1 would be correct?

    3. He is a lecturer in a university

    4. He is a lecturer at a university.

    Again, which one is correct?

    Both 3 and 4 are correct. I would use 4.
