Scientific advisor was the title given by UNIT to their personal adviser on science and technology-related matters.

In the 1970s, the British branch of UNIT originally selected Liz Shaw to be their scientific advisor, but this role soon went to the Third Doctor, with Liz staying on as his assistant. The Doctor served as UNIT's scientific advisor throughout his exile on Earth. (TV: Spearhead from Space onwards) By the time of the Zygons' infiltration of the UNIT Black Archive in the early 21st century, the Doctor, by then in his eleventh incarnation and having cut ties from UNIT shortly after his regeneration into the Fourth Doctor, was still technically working for UNIT. (TV: Robot, The Day of the Doctor) Colonel Mace told the Tenth Doctor that he never resigned his position. (TV: The Sontaran Stratagem)

By 2010, UNIT's scientific advisor was Malcolm Taylor. (TV: Planet of the Dead)
