The Director of JCAP is a lead Principal Investigator responsible for all aspects of the Hub's program.
JCAP has two Deputy Directors who are responsible for program management, strategic planning, budget, communications, and representation of the program to external communities. Positioned at Caltech and LBNL, they have additional management and operational responsibilities at their respective sites to ensure efficient operation of the Hub.

External Scientific and Strategic Advisory Boards provide the Hub with a broad perspective on JCAP's R&D program accomplishments, direction, and strategy.
JCAP's research program is organized into four Thrusts and a User Facilities Expert Group. Each Thrust is headed by a Thrust Coordinator, who is tasked with integrating research efforts within its the Thrust. The User Facilities Expert Group Coordinator communicates and educates JCAP scientists about the available capabilities at user facilities and their potential applications to JCAP research.
