Is your launch configuration of R in StatET configured
such that it takes ${resource_loc} as working directory
(Main tab of the launch configuration) ?

This way you can select the directory you want as a working
directory in the Project Explorer and launch R directly in
there. If you do not launch R in that way it will take a
default directory and therefore not load the .Rprofile from
the specific directory you want to be the working directory.
