We investigate whether the dynamical lattice supersymmetry discussed for various Hamiltonians, including one-dimensional quantum spin chains, by (Fendley et al 2003 J. Phys. A 36, 12399424; Yang and Fendley 2004 J. Phys. A 37, 893748; Hagendorf and Fendley 2012 J. Stat. Phys. 146, 112255) and (Hagendorf et al 2013 J. Stat. Phys. 150, 60957; Hagendorf and Liénardy 2017 J. Phys. A 50, 185202; Hagendorf and Liénardy 2018 J. Stat. Mech. 033106) might also exist for the Markov matrices of any one-dimensional exclusion processes, which have the additional constraint of zero column sums by comparison with the spin chains. We find that the DiSSEP (Dissipative Symmetric Simple Exclusion Process), introduced by Crampe et al in (Crampe et al 2016 Phys. Rev. E 94, 032102; Vanicat [arXiv:1708.02440]), provides one such example for suitably chosen parameters. The DiSSEP Markov matrix admits the supersymmetry in these cases because it is conjugate to Ising (λ^2 = 1) and Δ = −1/2 XXZ (λ^2 = −3) spin chain Hamiltonians which also possess the supersymmetry. The consequences for the spectrum of the DiSSEP Markov matrix are discussed. We also note that the length-changing supersymmetry relation for the DiSSEP Markov matrix M L and the supercharge Q L† for L sites, ${M}^{L}{Q}^{L\dagger }={Q}^{L\dagger }{M}^{L-1}$, is reminiscent of a 'transfer matrix' symmetry that has been observed in other exclusion processes and discuss the similarity.
