Both forms are correct. Both advisor and adviser are correct forms in English. They have the exact same meaning, which may be confusing, but there is no difference in usage or pronunciation. Advisor is slightly more common in American English and is used to describe job names. Both words are created by adding suffixes -or and -er which added to a noun give the meaning of someone doing something or working in said field. The suffixes have different origins (Latin and Germanic). The form adviser is more popular and widely used, and also a little bit older.
