Elnigar Iltebir is working (will be worked) as director for China at the National Security Council (NSC). According to the scope of responsibility, she will be working as an adviser of the President, and report directly to the Chief of NSC or President. If so, this position is equivalent to the deputy secretary of the department of federal government.

According to the https://www.thoughtco.com, the Members of the National Security Council are as below:

The president
The vice president
The secretary of the Department of State
The secretary of Defense
The secretary of the Army
The secretary of the Navy
The secretary of the Air Force
The Secretary of Energy
The chairman of the National Security Resources Board
The law also requires two advisers to the National Security Council. They are:

The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff serves as the military adviser to the council
The director of National Intelligence Services serves as the intelligence adviser to the council
The president has discretion to invite other members of his staff, administration, and cabinet to join the National Security Council. In the past, the president's chief of staff and chief counsel, the Treasury secretary, the assistant to the president for economic policy, and the attorney general have been invited to attend meetings of the National Security Council.

The ability to invite members from outside the military and intelligence community to play a role on the National Security Council has occasionally caused controversy. In 2017, for example, President Donald Trump used an executive order to authorize his chief political strategist, Steve Bannon, to serve on the National Security Council's principals committee. The move caught many Washington insiders by surprise. “The last place you want to put somebody who worries about politics is in a room where they’re talking about national security,” former Defense Secretary and CIA Director Leon E. Panetta told The New York Times. Bannon was later removed from the council.
