> Does anyone have a particularly polished way of offering access to user
files to non-root users for the purposes of job troubleshooting or the

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.
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.
setfacl -x u:scientist: ~/project_data
