Abstract: We consider field theories that exhibit a supersymmetric Lifshitz scaling with two real supercharges. The theories can be formulated in the language of stochastic quan-tization. We construct the free field supersymmetry algebra with rotation singlet fermions for an even dynamical exponent z = 2k in an arbitrary dimension. We analyze the classical and quantum z = 2 supersymmetric interactions in 2 + 1 and 3 + 1 spacetime dimensions and reveal a supersymmetry preserving quantum diagrammatic cancellation. Stochastic quantization indicates that Lifshitz scale invariance is broken in the (3 + 1)-dimensional quantum theory.
