This is a title in the German federal civil service. Roughly the equivalent of a brigadier general in the military or a GS-15 in the US civil service. Translate in the context given, e.g.: department chief, advisor, chef de cabinet, deputy assistant secretary of paper clip rust prevention etc.

Should be translated as "ministerial advisor" or "advisor to the Minister of..." The translation of the title comes from my father-in-law, who happens to be a Ministerialrat for the Kultusministerium Baden-Württemberg. HTH, Will
