The Associated Press Stylebook says "adviser," and goes as so far as to say it is not "advisor." There are a few other words that end in -or where the -er ending is preferred.

Speaking of stylebooks, check out this ... http://pacer.utm.edu/stylebook/ ... The wiki concept might help out editors (that actually ends in -or by the way) that are trying to get some consistency to their style.
