The existence of a second-order phase transition associated with spontaneous supersymmetry breaking in a prototype globally supersymmetric model with a conserved fermion number is demonstrated. The model is solved exactly and it is shown that one of the superfields develops a vacuum expectation value below a critical temperature and that the ground-state energy is nonzero.
