Do germans use the word "Wissenchaft Ratgeber" for "scientific advisor" (for example scientific advisor of Masters or PhD students) or they use completely different word for it?

"Ratgeber" is a little bit more often a book, giving hints and advises, but also a person doing this. In universitary conext it is more common to use the word "Betreuer" and as verb "betreuen" (weak verb) or the whole thing as an abstract: "Betreuung". Especially for students you want to become doctor there is a "Doktorvater", so a professor giving advice for the process of becoming a doctor.
