What is Carol's official position on the five-year mission?

So a friend of mine just asked me what is Carol's position on the Enterprise. She asked is she taking Spock's place as Science Officer? And I thought wow I don't know. So any ideas on what position she will be taking while on the Enterprise?

Spock calls her "an additional science officer", so I assume she'll be part of his department. She's also a weapons' specialist, which will no doubt come in handy.

If it's up to Kirk, it'll be anything but Missionary

Marcus will be one of the Science Specialists aboard the Enterprise under Spock. Spock and Marcus will gang up together to make Kirk's life joy/misery.
Spock and she are going to work together to help terraform New Vulcan.

Which will be murderously awkward since Spock-Prime already chose a habitable Vulcanesque planet and the refugees are already living there!

Here's a thought: Maybe Carol will be the Chief Science Officer *on the Beta shift*? It might be interesting if we finally got a Trek that didn't usually pretend that the Alpha shift bridge crew are the only crew that are ever on duty when anything interesting happens.

WHAT IS CAROL'S OFFICIAL POSITION ON THE FIVE YEAR MISSION?
Her 'official' position?

"Captain's Woman".

(Hey, it is another parallel universe... it could happen, right?)

Kirk's yeoman, perhaps cocktease if she doesn't play along.

If I recall correctly, Peter David once did a humorous issue of his DC Comics' movie era TOS comic in which we meet the Gamma Shift on an unusually eventful evening on the bridge of the USS Enterprise. Lots of very weird aliens and a few misfits.

I'm pretty sure we can do better than this.

We can do better. Some of us are discussing this seriously, others in a locker-room tone.

Re: What is Carol's official position on the five-year mission?

I thought King Daniel Into Darkness response very much nailed it. He listed the facts in evidence as demonstrated by canon so beyond his comments would be pure speculation/wishful thinking, anyway.
