Check the project permission scheme - do you have the permission to *set* the assignee? The field will vanish if you don't.

The permission's name is "Assign Users". Please check your Project's permission scheme and make sure you have that permission.

The Admin Helper is particularly useful for such cases. Nevertheless, this most likely looks like a permission issue, as answered by Nic.
