Kevin McGowan (PhD 2011) has just accepted a tenure track position in the Linguistics Program at the University of Kentucky. Kevin will join a vibrant community of linguists in Lexington, including Rusty Barret who was also a member of our Department in the early 2000's. Since graduating from Michigan in 2011, Kevin has gained valuable teaching and research experience with appointments in Linguistics at both Rice University of Stanford University. He will put all of this experience to use as he sets up his new Phonetics Laboratory at the University of Kentucky. Congratulations, Kevin!
