Using 36 pb-1 of proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 7TeV collected by the CMS detector at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, we have performed studies of the jet transverse structure. The fractional transverse momentum distribution as a function of the distance from the jet axis, is used to define the differential and the integrated jet shape variables. The unfolded jet-shape observables are compared to predictions from QCD parton shower Monte-Carlo generators with different parameter sets of PYTHIA and HERWIG++. The measurement covers a rapidity range up to |y|=3 and a transverse momentum range between 15 GeV and 1 TeV.
