In this project, we present an extensive program of Search for Physics Beyond the Standard Model through the analysis of the data taken by the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment, one of the experiments which analyses the proton- proton collisions provided by the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) accelerator. The main goal of this project is the analysis of the full dataset collected by the CMS Collaboration before the LHC Long Shutdown 1 (LS1), with emphasis on the search for new particles decaying to two massive bosons (W,Z,H). A second goal of this project is to participate on the update and recommissioning of the analyses during the LHC LS1, envisioning a fast turnaround time upon the data-taking restart in 2015. Finally, we also plan an involvement on the activities for development of the L1 Pixel Trigger System, an extension of the CMS L1 Trigger such that it can use the information of the Pixel Detector.
