For the default assignee on the project as a whole you probably want:
Project Settings > Users and Roles > Edit Defaults (at top right of screen)
If you have different default assignees set up per Component, you might also want to check:
Project Settings > Components
Hope that helps.
@Clint Young, this is an old thread. In general you are best served putting in a new question if you can find an answer in the Community already. With that said, the default is "unassigned" and you have to change it to Project Lead or Component lead to get a different behavior.
