Currently, switching a scientist assigned to lead research with one assisting planetary research requires the following steps:
Click the portrait on the research screen.
Scroll down to the scientist you want.
Select him.
Confirm.
Open the Civilian Ships tab, if needed.
Scroll down to the empty ship.
Click it.
Click the portrait.
Scroll up to the idle scientist.
Click him.
If the game was unpaused when you reassigned the first guy, you also have to assign the ship to assist research again, since being empty cancels that job:
*Click to center the camera on the ship.
*Right click on the planet.
*Select Assist Research.
*Return to the galaxy map.
*Return to where you want to be on the galaxy map.
Close the Civilian Ships tab, if desired.
Done.

If there was a swap button, the above would be cut down to:

Click the portrait on the research screen.
Scroll down to the scientist you want.
Click 'Swap Assignments'.
Confirm.
Done.
