JIRA doesn't allow you to lock fields. The work around is to put the field on a transition screen for a transition with a condition of a particular project role. Then put the field ONLY on the view screen. Put the transition anywhere you want to be able to change the field. 

As a small addition: you probably might want to add this transition as a global reflexive one, meaning 'From any status to itself' so that it's available for the allowed users all the time.
