[en] We investigate the finite-time thermodynamics of a single-level fermion system
interacting with a particle reservoir. The optimal protocol to extract the maximum work from
the system when moving the single energy level between an initial higher value and a final lower
value in a finite time is calculated from a quantum master equation. The calculation also yields
the optimal protocol to raise the energy level with the expenditure of the least amount of work
on the system. The optimal protocol displays discontinuous jumps at the initial and final times.
