like?

acl[0] would do the job nicely, just make sure the filesystem in question
is mounted with the acl option then, a user experiencing problems can give
the scientist account temporary permissions.
```shell
setfacl -R -m u:scientist:rwx ~/project_data
```
After the problem is fixed the user can revoke the permissions to keep the
home directory secure.
```shell
setfacl -x u:scientist: ~/project_data
```
